                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Red Special, what can I say.  I'm stunned as should you be.  Your lack of damage
doing did you in and the only thing that makes me sad was that I didn't try to hit
more often.
     I will try to stay on the throne one more turn since my only goal is to get to
ADM.  I don't see it happening but who knows.

          Through the Window

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUKAL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  KARNHORN KARNAGE turned their 1-0-0 
turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BICYCLE RACE 
win a fight and gain 42 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ROVING DEMON beat RED SPECIAL 
and RED SPECIAL lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as WATSON takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, ZUKAL?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ZUKAL, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
QUEEN the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
KARNHORN KARNAGE.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Let's see, 18-4-0.  Pretty good record for a living 
warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for TERM of SERPENTS 
HOLD 3.  Tsk.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up 
with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUKAL to get a drink than The Blue Boar Inn! 
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of ZUKAL. 
I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now--

Our heartfelt congratulations to Through the Window.  Duelmaster!  Way to go! -- the
Blue Moon bunch

And we salute Barely Legal, a wild kid but a tourney victor.

Three-two!  Our luck has turned.  Of course, it seems to be a corkscrew kind of luck,
turning every turn, so to speak.  But we'll take it. -- The Tall Man, for the rest of
the Blue Moon

Hey, we can speak for ourselves, loser! -- Wilkerson, Picasso, and Orion Stone

Especially me.  *I* defeated a managed gladiator, not a standby.  A Serpent!  Ha. --
